create new laws, how do they know they would be effective? that's one of the things that in covering congress you see that up close, is while they understand that there is a critical need, it's an issue that matters to people, what can they do to would actually make a difference if they put all this political capital into it. so background checks might be a place to begin. high capacity magazines, there might be a place to start with that. well, manufactures will then adjust to work around whatever a new law would b it's complex, it's difficult and one of the most important things to watch is the impact of the president's sort of campaign style tour, when he visits places around the country, urges people to take action, will we hear the phones going off in this place? will people be emailing and writing to their members of congress demanding some sort of action? that's the sort of thing that members of congress pay attention to. and we don't have a sense yet of where people are in terms of not just the polling, but what would they be willing to do to reach out to their own personal m

inability as a civil society, a nation that takes such great pride in the rule of law, to in some way come to grips with the mace of of guns and violence -- with the place of guns and violence. and before we begin this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and

this problem. >> reporter: the president will also ask congress for a tougher federal law against gun trafficking to penalize sellers who do not carry out thorough background checks. he will also seek more federal funds to facilitate background checks, more personnel to respond to requests for those checks, and more federal agents to inspect gun shops. in addition, mr. obama will offer schools and school districts funds to hire trained and armed security officers. he will also seek funds to identify and treat mental illness sooner. the president may suggest other ideas tomorrow, but this is the core of a plan he will introduce with school children here who wrote to him after the newtown massacre in sadness. top officials here tell us scott, that every law enforcement official that was consulted said universal background checks would do the most good after newtown. that's advice the president appears to have taken to heart. >> pelley: major, those background checks and the background checks for mental illness seem to be the key to all of this. why does the president rely on that so muc

, there are federal background checks already, so he may expand that law. host: take a look at what the washington post says president obama is expected to say later this morning. background checks for all firearms buyers, as did the assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips. some of those or most of those would have to be done through congress. but perhaps he does some other enhance the database and other things by executive order. caller: defining who is crazy and who is not or maybe someone is distressed because they lost their job, it is going to be very difficult to define mental health. how do they get access to those records. is it a federal? that is the thing. people will say, is my doctor or psychiatrist spying on me? there may be less people going to see a therapist or a psychiatrist because they are afraid they will spy on them and report information back to the federal government. host: let's go back to what you said at the beginning when you talk about the politics of this. this headline -- that was in reference to what harry reid had said. some democrats backing down from an

, including the republican-controlled senate, passed one of the toughest gun reform laws in the country. the governor signed the bill into law immediately. the new measure bans high capacity magazines limiting clips to seven rounds of ammunition. the law changes the definition of assault weapons, making guns like the bushmaster illegal. there are now background checks for all gun sales, including private transactions. the law requires background checks for ammunition. it also requires mandatory reporting of mental health threats. governor cuomo said that his state wanted to send a message to the rest of the country. quick action on sensible gun laws is possible. >> we can strike back, and we can defend ourselves, but we're going to do it intelligently. and we're going to do it prudently. and we're going to put rules in place that actually protect innocent people in society. >> legislative bodies like the one in new york are basically on the move. tomorrow it will be the president's turn to show his hand. president obama will unveil several gun safety proposals, including a universal bac
to do some things on his own, much of it perhaps will be focused only some laws that are already on the books, enforcing those laws. we expect the president to push for data gathering, information on weapons that have been used in crimes. those are some things that the president will push through in executive order. >> all right. again lothian standing by for us on the north lawn of the white house, keeping an eye on the president's movements as well. we're on the countdown to seeing the president live. we should also mention to you that new york is one step ahead of the president it looks like one step ahead of the nation in this particular movement. the governor, andrew cuomo, signed into law a sweeping gun control law. it is the first such law enacted in response to the newtown shooting massacre. that law expands the state's existing assault weapons ban it also limits the size of gun magazines to seven rounds, just seven rounds. that's smaller than some of the actual capacities of guns. this law also includes measures to better keep firearms away from mentally ill people and i
. also, the government has an obligation to protect americans with laws that do not harm law abiding citizens. that means that any new gun laws must allow we, the people, to protect ourselves as the founding fathers mandated. talking points has no problem with background checks. or with gun registration. after all, we register our cars. but these things should be decided by the individual states, not the federal government. if the state like new york wants to ban assault rifles, fine. but wyoming may not want to do that. and the feds should respect the states' rights. what president obama can do is make all gun crimes federal crimes. congress can forbid individuals from crossing state lines with certain types of weapons. bank robbery is a federal crime. so is some drug dealing. why not put gun felonies in that category? let's take a look at chicago which has banned handguns. more people were murdered by guns in chicago in 2012 last year than were killed among coalition forces in afghanistan. obviously the gun ban in coshocton doesn't work. do we all get that? what would work is a 10-
